Wales to go Blue, Green and Yellow in rainbow coalition!

It is with some amusement that I find that the Queen has congratulated Alex Salmond on hos election win in Scotland, but both Gordon Brown and Tony Blair have only found time to congratulate Rhodri Morgan for hanging on by his finger tips in Wales (See this by Guido).

Well, it seems that Wales will only go Labours way for a little while.

The executive of the Liberal Democrats decided not to go through with a coalition deal with Plaid Cymru and the Conservatives but have now been over ruled by their members so have no choice. All we need now is Plaid to have a vote in favour and Rhodri can be chucked out on his ear!

I wonder if Gordon Brown will be so keen to congratulate Rhodri's successor?

Perhaps not!

The Telegraph has this.

This deliberate snub by Blair and Brown could backfire big time, it will be interesting to see how the voters in Scotland react.
I do think it gives us an insight into the "petty" way that Brown can behave if he is thwarted.

ChrisD, Yes I agree, I think it could backfire big time. I can't imagine the voters being impressed.

The only Rainbow I ever liked was the kids tv program, mind you looking at that shower not much difference.

Fidothedog, Perhaps you are being unkind to the Welsh?
